I like it.

thanks gents, I'm really happy with the way it's coming out that handle material was looking a little bland but man did it pop when I started buffing.

got a question for those participating in the drawing, are any of you lefty's or would want a left handed sheath instead of right hand?

I think it looks great. I'm a lefty, if I am to be lucky enough to get that knife in my stocking I'd much prefer a left handed sheath.

maybe I'll wait a couple more days to send it out and Nick can spin the wheel early to figure out what kind of sheath I need to make before I send it off.

vicrider wanted to be in the draw ... so I spun the wheel.

 

I'll let Nick tell you all who will be getting the knife.

I won the knife last year and it’s a VERY, VERY nice knife. This year’s knife looks even better than mine. I won’t enter this year, but only because I won last year. Whoever does win this year is in for a treat.

Since Vicrider is going to make everyone wait ... everyone please type in your handedness ... left or right, so vicente can make the appropriate sheath.

I don't understand. Is this a swap where everyone sends something in, or is it just a drawing?

A beautiful piece of work. Good Luck to whoever ends up with it. There's nothing like having a good blade at your side.
